FA Cup date confirmed & 3 back from injury – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are back into match preparation mode: Inter Milan and the Champions League on Tuesday is the next task, with team news and Jurgen’s pre-game talk topping Monday’s news.


Triple injury boost for Reds

Bobby Firmino, Joel Matip and Thiago Alcantara – they are all back in training and hopefully available for Liverpool as Inter Milan come to town.

Jurgen Klopp stopped short of saying they’d all be in the squad for sure, especially with Firmino having been sidelined for a little longer than the others, but Matip was only ill and Thiago missed just a week or two.

It boosts the squad options considerably across all three lines of the team and will at the very least make the bench stronger, giving plenty of optimism we’ll head into the last eight.

A two-goal lead from the first leg, a trophy in the bag, a fantastic winning run and now key players back fit – it’s all looking promising for the run-in.

The Reds will play Huddersfield or Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup quarter-final and the FA have finally decided on the details.

We’re away, it’ll be played on Sunday 20 March with a kick-off time of 6pm GMT.

The game will be live on ITV.

Our rescheduled league game with Man United doesn’t yet have a new fixed date.

  • Luis Suarez will leave Atletico in the summer and is wanted at Inter, Ajax, Sevilla and a bunch of Brazilian clubs. He’s still a class forward – he and Haller together would be fun if he returned to the Eredivisie!
  • Chelsea have up to 10 interested parties keen to make an offer for the club apparently – but a cost of over £1bn to rebuild Stamford Bridge, an actual registered sh*thole at this point, will scare off a few
  • West Ham want to sign Gerard Deulofeu in the summer, which feels a bit like Moyesey bringing Fellaini and co to Old Trafford that time. Not the way to go!

Rhys joins the gang, no immediate fears on Ibou.

Tonight’s late fixture is Spurs vs Everton, but you could also watch the Forest-Huddersfield game slightly earlier to see who we’ll face in the last eight!
